with the greater than 5X HOB's and planted tanks.. the filter on a mid to high light planted tank is only for machanical filtration the plants stay ahead of your bio-media when it comes to nitrogen uptake.... ie more cycles are not going to do anything but disturbe your plants.. check out the new sticky malkore put up.. sorry but I think 5X is good advise for planted.. I dont think Im the only one..
